Happy Easter All
Just wanted to write a more positive blog for me any ways.
Been away for 4 days, visiting inlaws in yorkshire. The trip up was mainly in heavy rain and the temp dropped considerably compared to london/essex. I could feel my ra, but surprising I did not give me any problems other than an awareness in my knees and some slight stiffing in my hands.
I was tired the following day and rested up to be expected and on thursday we went for a walk on the Chevine forest with my dog and father law. I did not want to do it initially in case it set of my ra, but I showed willing and under the guise we would all turn back as soon as I started to feel any discomfort. Well I did a 3 mile round trip with out any pain (thought I should not over do it).
Up shot is I have been pain free for at least 5 days now which is very rare and unusual. It's a really nice treat and I thoroughly enjoyed our first trip away since diagnosis and I am really pleased I was able to pace myself.
I've got chores mainly washing and some marking to do over the easter break, which I will make a start later on, but other than that I feel reasonably well and that's after having the viral infection and having to go for confirmatory xrays for a bakers cyst. Just shows how variable the disease it!
Enjoying the temporary respite from the disease
Happy easter all
